    SOTD THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 17

    Day 6 of the G7DC. My late post is due to a shelf collapse that occurred last night. As a result yours truly was caught up in trying to deal with what I felt to be a minor mishap, but my dear SWMBO was convinced the apocalypse was in the offing if I didn’t address things immediately. Well, did that after I shaved, but never had the chance to report results until now. Well, it was not a fluke. The Feather DX delivered the closest shave I’ve ever experienced. In fact the stubble was so slight that I reached velveteen status in two (ATG, XTG) passes. I guess I could have gotten away without a face shave if I wanted, but that’s what we’re all about. I'm beginning to feel very comfortable with the DX. The dome shave was acceptably close, but I used the DX to clean up the same recalcitrant stubble at the bottom of the crevasse in the middle of the back of my head by holding the blade with both hands. The tremors were definitely making themselves known, but I managed, despite one small weep, to clean things up without scalping myself. So, given how well things have developed for me skill-wise with the DX, I’ve decided to complete the focus with a final shave tomorrow! I feel lean, clean and velveteen!

    RAZOR; Feather DX Wooden Handle (Mug), Schick Type L Paul Revere (DomeJ
    BLADE: Schick B-20 Proline
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot
    CREAM: Nancy Boy Signature
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Humphreys Lilac WH and Osage Rub. Finished with Pre de Provence Bergamot & Thyme Balm.

    SOTD FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 18, 2020

    When I began the G7DC I had real reservations about being able to complete it, but here I am on day 7 on this sunny morning in the Philly Burbs. I’ve decided that I may have to begin shaving the mug every other day if my straights shave as close as this Feather DX. Nevertheless, my results seemed paradoxically at odds with what used to occur when I began my straight shaving journey. In those early days, I found myself cleaning up my mug with the safety razor designated for my Dome shave. For the last two shaves, I’ve been cleaning up my dome with the open edge blade, since the Paul Revere L Type is just not as efficient a shaver as my preferred noggin selections. In any case the focus is done, and I’m gratified to have completed it. As a result, I plan on spending three to four consecutive shaves with my straight razor selections in the future given the benefit I received with the DX. Another great shave leaving me velveteen, clean and refreshed.

    RAZOR: Feather DX Wooden Handle (Mug), Schick Paul Revere L Type (Dome)
    BLADE: Feather Proguard
    PREP: Cold water rinse followed by Argan Oil
    BRUSH: MrEE Knurled Aluminum Handle Hybrid Knot 007
    CREAM: Nancy Boy Signature
    POSTSHAVE: Cold water wash with brush squeezings followed by Humphreys Lilac WH and Osage Rub. Finished with Pre de Provence Bergamot & Thyme Balm.
